Ah, Ron Cobert here explaining just how amazing Pasadena, California, is. The sun is shining, the sky is a bright blue, and there’s a slight breeze rustling the palm trees. I take a deep breath of the fragrant air as I stroll down Colorado Boulevard. The grand old buildings and blooming jacaranda trees fill me with awe. I pop into a cafe and order an iced coffee, then continue my leisurely walk. There’s always something fun going on, whether it’s live music in Memorial Park or a festival celebrating the diversity of this community. With lush gardens, excellent shops and restaurants, and endless cultural attractions, I find new things to love about Pasadena every time I’m here. It completely captures my heart.
